With the 2017 Formula One set to arrive in Bahrain this April, The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain will be hosting three-day Grand Prix stays to combine the world-class luxury this hotel is known for, with exploration of the island-state, and exclusive tickets to the Formula One World Championship race.
It’s at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir – 30 kilometers southwest of the island’s capital Manama – that the greatly anticipated event will unfold. Here, the Main Grand Stand commands views over the track as drivers race through the desert and oasis-styled infield. And it’s this desert setting that gives the Sakhir Circuit such a unique atmosphere during the breath-taking race.
The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain sits to the north of the Formula One track on a secluded stretch of coast outside the city center of Manama. With its own white sand shores and views over the Arabian Gulf and Manama, the resort is an exceptionally scenic base to explore this extraordinary location from. By arriving two days ahead of the main event, guests who are a part of this exclusive F1 experience have plenty of time to soak up their surroundings, while staying a luxury seafront villa, with 24-hour butler service, lavish Arabic breakfasts, and complimentary access to the hotel’s Club Lounge.
The Spa is an integral part of any stay at the hotel, with VIP experiences and spa treatments providing guests with a sanctuary of calm. And this is in addition to the hotel’s fully equipped gym, beachfront tennis at The Royal Beach Club and squash in the indoor squash court, as well as lush gardens that are home to flamingos.
Naturally, the destination itself plays the most significant role in any guest’s visit to Bahrain, with a unique culture to delve into, historic sites to explore, and a wealth of luxury shopping.
The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain F1 three-night package can be booked on any nights coinciding with the Grand Prix, which runs from 14th to 16th April 2017. The package includes Formula One tickets with seats on the Main Grand Stand.
